REVIEWS

4 stars  [Happy Holidays] is, simply, a well-told story about interesting characters, the indie cinema version of a comfortable, clever novel.  Theres enough sharp humor and witty dialogue to bring up memories of, say, Woody Allen  Ferguson and Misuraca's screenplay lives and breathes in the little moments, the corners of the action. Throwaway comments are gold, tiny bits of business that give the story an extra layer of rich detail.  Hungerford is fabulous in [his] role, if only for showing enough restraint to avoid turning Patrick into an unlovable, wishy-washy loser  Rhoads and Crye are unafraid to make their characters unlikable, knowing that well come around to their sides eventually.

A -  A surprising and entertaining holiday entry from co-writer/director James C. Ferguson. In a more opportune time and less competitive movie climate, it might even have an outside shot at an Oscar  while it certainly has its moments of sentiment, Happy Holidays earns each one while maintaining an irreverent yet respectful tone to each character, the backgrounds that have shaped them, and the situations that have each one unsure of what they want this holiday season  By the end of it, I was thinking that Christmas had come early for me.

"Happy Holidays was nothing but an absolute delight to sit through ... Ferguson crafts a very sensitive tale through a very deft hand of crafty wit in its screenplay, and excellent dialogue amongst characters that feel genuine and as real as you can get with your own get-together with friends. Its a comedy about friendship, family and faith, with some really touching themes about coming to terms, acceptance and reconciliation ... Razor sharp dialogue [that] comes across as music to the ears, aided by the excellent delivery by its cast ... A a quality production."
Stefan S. at A Nutshell Review (Singapore)

I laughed, I cried! Well, okay, I laughed. A lot. This charming and witty Holidays provides plenty o chuckles and even warms the cockles. And really, how many holidays can you say that about?
